4th type of cookie complete... {plus a cookie storage tip}

I am way BEHIND previous years in my Christmas cookie making... and I don't think I'm going to catch up.

I love to make Christmas cookies so I can put together cookie trays for the neighbors, childcare/Sunday School teachers at church, child care at the gym, AND for our annual Christmas Cocktail party!

In past years I have made about 7 different types of cookies...
Previous years cookie tray from Annual Cocktail Party
 ... this year I have only made 4 {tear}! Although I am making my Swedish Spritz Cookie dough tonight so it will be ready to be baked tomorrow (when I have time).

Cookie Storage Tip
On a side note - mom passed down a clever way to store our oh-so-fragile Grandma's Sugar Cookies using coffee filters! Put 5 or so cookies in one filter...

... and then make as many stacks as will fit into your container.

Works every time!!


  1. Fantastic tip about the coffee filters!!
    Doing all my baking tonight! All your goodies look very yummy!

  2. That's a great tip. Another tip, if you are shipping cookies, layer bubble wrap between the layers of cookies and they won;t break in transit.
